I've had this truck in project status for far too long, and come to the realization that I will never complete it. So I'd like to see it go to someone who has the time and energy to finish.

Good - Brand new 8R19.5 tires (X6), Front axle / brakes / suspension rebuilt. Rear axle / brakes / suspension rebuilt (have both 4.10 gears with locker and 5.13 gears open diff). Transmission (SM420 with parking break) rebuilt. Engine (235) in process of rebuild (by me), but all there and partially assembled. Carburetor professionally rebuilt. Grain bed and hydraulics rebuilt. Frame is all cleaned and painted.

Bad - Nothing is done to the body, and it has all the usual rust in all the usual areas. Crack in front glass. The sides to the grain bed are not stripped / rebuilt but all there and thick solid steel. Master cylinder not rebuilt.

If you've got questions, ask them. Located in Wentzville Missouri area (west of St. Louis). For the right price I can haul this. I can send pictures if you want to see something specific. Other pics in my profile. If you offer me $4,000 I'll say yes. e-mail jhaa_lives at yahoo dot com.

Hi John! How are you today? I recently joined the Stovebolt forum (I will admit that I know just enough about vehicles to get me into trouble so please excuse my ignorance!) and have a question re this truck if it is still for sale? I have a 58 Chev Stepside truck whose cab is great but the box is shot......it has the original 235 engine in it. Is the cab from your truck different than mine? i.e. would mine fit on your frame or would this require way too much fabrication work? (I do not having welding abilities). Thanks and have a great day!

Borbas,

jhaa's truck is a 1-ton with grain body, not a step side pickup...

The OP hasn't been on site since his original post. His email is in his ad so you'll probably need to email him if you want a quick reply.

Borbas, to answer your question, yes, your cab should fit on the frame.

Sorry for the delayed response. Yes, if it's the same year it should fit. I would only worry if the 8R19.5's would fit in the wheel wells of the small bolt fenders. But I think everything else would line up identically.
